Prone to catching on fire!
12 January 2013
Summary: Just a warning, I purchased one of these cards about a year ago. It had problems running hotter than most other cards I was aware of but for this card that is considered normal. One day the card started making a strange noise and when I was about to pop the case open to inspect it the card started sparking, and pouring smoke followed by a small fire. The smoke filled up my entire office, I had to immediately unplug the PC and fan off the card.
Summary: The best customer service? Usually EVGA, until you have to pay for shipping RMA items back to yourself... Overall, the total cost for the RMA was 95 euros, 25 euros to ship to Germany, 25 euros because of missing screws, and 45 euros to ship it back because I wasnt in the EU! Why not just buy a new card then! They were kind enough to pay for shipping this time as I wasnt informed I had to cover the cost.
DOA looks like it was someone elses card that was returned

Summary: not really happy at all took the card out of the box and upon checking it out noticed it was scratched up and part of the 6 in the gtx460 was completely worn off and of course when i installed it and installed the drivers it wouldnt get past the loading screen would go to black screen and start flashing digital/analog in the top left of the screen .
Summary: Fair warning to all, don't buy from evga. I bought a graphics card from them a couple of years ago, 7600 gt. My computer stopped working today, I pulled out the graphics card and found 5 out of 7 of the large capacitors had blown up, literally, their guts were spilling out. This was clear case of defective parts but they refused to replace their crappy product (made in china by the way).
Summary: Dear Sir, I received GeForceGTX460 from you but as i see this part dose not works properly, when i have instaled it, it works normally but after about 1 hour it stuck and my computer goes for restart. When i observed i found that cooler on video card dose not works.
Summary: I've been a Geforce person for a long time, and the last video cards that were in my gaming comp were 2 GeForce8800 ultra cards running SLI. After a few years I started to get lines on the screen.I took one out and last month the other card took a dump.So I ordered the GeForce460GTX. Put the card in updated the drivers and my screen would go black sporatically for about 2 seconds then come back on.Sent it back and got another one...
Nvidia cards not actually compatible with Win7 or Vista

Summary: Nvidia cards are consistently buggy. My card crashes literally every day on an otherwise high-end liquid-cooled system where it was professionally installed. Nvidia will claim that TDR crashes, which plague almost all of their products, are the fault of Windows, because technically the TDR "feature" (which their cards are not compatible with) is what causes the conflict, not anything to do with the GPU itself.
This card is way too old to be 100+ dollars, especially if it is prewowned. Not worth over 80 shipped..

Summary: All of The resellers that are trying to get these cards out the door are way overpriced! really now, $110 for a 3 year old card...no. This just puts the purchaser into a whole new graphics card bracket where you can buy a new 560 for 130 and have a much higher VRAM amount of 1024+. This card is ONLY 768mb ... not enough for 1920x1080 gaming. I can and have found several gtx 460 1024mb cards for cheaper that can handle big screen gaming easier and have more pipes...
